Ripples in Spacetime: Einstein, Gravitational Waves, and the Future of Astronomy

“The detection of gravitational waves – ripples in spacetime – by the Ligo-Virgo observatories has already been called the scientific coup of this century and lead to the scientists responsible being awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics. Govert Schilling recounts the struggles that threatened to derail the quest and describes the detector’s astounding precision, weaving far-reaching discoveries about the universe into a gripping story of ambition and perseverance.”
